In vitro, seeds of mung bean, sunflower, okra and mash bean were treated with homeopathic drugs namely Arnica montana and Thuja occidentalis (30C) were evaluated against root rot fungi. Different concentrations like 100, 75 and 50% v/v were tested to investigate seeds germination and inhibition of root rot fungi such as Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizoctonia solani and Macrophomina phaseolina. Results indicated that treated seeds of mung bean, sunflower, okra and mash bean with pure homeopathic drugs…

USE OF HOMEOPATHIC DRUGS IN COMBINATION WITH FERTILIZERS FOR THE CONTROL OF ROOT ROT FUNGI

Seeds treated with homeopathic drugs in addition of phosphorous and nitrogen fertilizers as soil amendment showed significant inhibitory effect on fungal growth as well as improved the plant growth.

FUNGICIDAL EFFECTS OF HOMEOPATHIC DRUGS IN THE CONTROL OF ROOT ROT FUNGI AND GROWTH OF LEGUMINOUS AND NON LEGUMINOUS CROPS

Homeopathic drugs due to fungicidal potential are used as substitute technique in reducing the incidence of root rot fungi like Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium spp and Macrophomina phaseolina.

Effect of seed coating material in the efficacy of microbial antagonists for the control of root rot fungi on okra and sunflower

The biological potential of different microbial antagonists viz., Bacillus thuringiensis, Rhizobium meliloti, Aspergillus niger and Trichoderma harzianum was examined and gum arabic was found more effective in reducing infection by root rot fungi.

Effects of potentised homeopathic medicines on the germination, growth and photosynthetic activity of Pisum sativum L.

A stimulating effect was observed on growth as well as photosynthetic activity at the higher potency as compared to untreated one even after the dilution of drug beyond the Avogadro’s number.

Assessment of antifungal activity of Rumex vesicarius L. and Ziziphus spina-christi (L.) Willd. extracts against two phytopathogenic fungi

It was evident that plant extracts could provide potential source of antifungal compounds and maximum activity of plant extracts was observed against spore production.

Use of homeopathic preparations in phytopathological models and in field trials: a critical review.

Plant Products as Antimicrobial Agents

The current status of botanical screening efforts, as well as in vivo studies of their effectiveness and toxicity, are summarized and the structure and antimicrobial properties of phytochemicals are addressed.

The effect of inoculation of seed with antagonists of Rhizoctonia solani on the growth of wheat

Four inoculants significantly reduced symptoms caused by R. solani and increased grain yield and dry matter of wheat and the magnitude of these differences suggests that biological control and growth stimulation are involved in yield increases.

In vitro effect of plant leaf extracts on mycelial growth and sclerotial germination of Sclerotium cepivorum

This extract is potentially useful for the control of garlic white rot and its effect will be evaluated under field conditions.

Ecological aspects of seed health testing

The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors affecting the outcome of incubation methods used to test seeds for the presence of fungal pathogens, and the importance of the factor 'host vigour' in incubation Methods was realized.
